 “The Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA), is one of the most efficient and effective government agencies. It can get things done. This is because of the strong leadership of Director General Lilia de Lima.

As a one- stop shop for investors, directly issuing permits, the import and export procedures are simplified. It provides 24/7 continuous service to investors. There is no bureaucratic tape at PEZA. Simplicity and speed are important aspects to which investors pay attention.”

ON Semiconductor, Philippines

Engages in probe, assembly and test of semiconductor devices at Golden Mile Business Park 

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for all that PEZA has done to make it easier and less costly for ON Semiconductor to conduct our operations in the Philippines.  As you know, we became a PEZA registered company back in 2007 and since then we have enjoyed not only the benefits of a PEZA registered company from an incentives standpoint but we have also noticed that the red tape that we had experience in the past has largely disappeared.  Of course we still do encounter difficulties sometimes when dealing with agencies outside of PEZA but we know that with only one phone call to your organization that a very competent team of people will be mobilized to resolve our issues.  I know you told me when we became a PEZA company there would be no more Red Tape but Instead only Red Carpet treatment and indeed that has been true.  Also of note is the enthusiasm in which you and your organization approach bringing more businesses and jobs to the Philippines. I have been in many functions with you where you represented PEZA, and the Philippines, so well that I am sure those in the audience were enticed to increase their investments or bring more business to the Philippines from abroad.  I was certainly one of those people in the past and as a result we have more than doubled the size of our operations here in the Philippines in just a few years time. Your organization is a model of efficiency and ethical behavior in the Philippines and other agencies would do well to model your success. We at ON Semiconductor look forward to a very long and mutually beneficially relationship here in the Philippines.

“PEZA under the leadership of Director General Lilia B. De Lima has been providing excellent support for Mactan Economic Zone. The locators in MEZ1 are very grateful for PEZA's efforts in the reduction of electric power rate which is among the highest in the Ecozones. This is very timely in view of the on-going worldwide economic crisis affecting our industries. Other assistance from PEZA include the skills training courses and placements for the displaced workers, freezing of rentals, extension of the income tax holiday, etc. PEZA has championed environmental conservation projects which include tree planting sites in the Cebu Buhisan Watershed, the MMT project in MEZ1 launced over a year ago has been the model for the public economic zones, etc. PEZA has been very successful in securing for the locators the support and cooperation by the various agencies as Bureau of Customs, DENR, LGU's, etc.”

Takashi Kawano

Manufactures wire harness for various electrical appliances at Cavite Economic Zone

 “It has been over 19 years since Hayakawa Electronics (Phils.) Corp. started operations in the Philippines.  We owe our success to the hard working and highly skilled Filipino workers. This is one of the main factors considered by our parent company when they decided to set up manufacturing operations in the Philippines.”

 “In addition to our outstanding workers, the competitive advantage of operating in the economic zone is the ease of importing materials and exporting our products. The introduction of Automated Export Declaration System and Electronic Import Permit System, has made it even more simple and faster to process documents and move our cargo.  In particular, the Cavite Economic Zone administration has always taken the lead in introducing ways to help us conduct our operations smoothly and reduce the cost of doing business.”

 “Of course, our success would not be possible without the strong leadership of Director General Lilia B. De Lima.  Through her, PEZA has continuously improved and enhanced the services to investors.  We rank PEZA as the most efficient and corruption-free Government office. PEZA staff are always easy to approach and quick to respond to investors' concerns.  Even when we experience this global financial crisis, our beloved Director General took the initiative to find ways to help us survive the crisis, and keep our valuable workers.”


Maki Takizawa

Manufactures syringes, needles and intravenous catheter at Laguna Technopark 

“TPC has started operations in the PEZA economic zone in LTI in 1999.  From that time on, TPC has created significant milestone in the Terumo Manufacturing  business by producing and shipping 100Mpcs syringes from October 2009.

TPC headcount rose from 118 associates in year 2000 to 1700 associates as of October 2009.
Although, it was not an easy task for TPC, however PEZA has been our partners in providing unparalleled service to the investors in order for us to continue to expand and diversify.

I truly believe and support PEZA’s mission to accelerate the creation of employment opportunities and to spur growth and diversification of exports.

TPC  will work toward achieving these targets by implementing the key strategies of reorganizing internal companies to enhance our business portfolio, promoting globalization, and tackling the challenges of creating innovation.

I’m confident that all these things are possible as TPC, Terumo and PEZA  join hands as we work together gearing towards achieving our goals.

I look forward for the many exciting opportunities the Philippines and PEZA can offer and TPC will continue to support PEZA in its commitment to make doing business less costly, more efficient and more transparent “.

Naoki Shiraishi
Yutaka Manufacturing (Philippines) Inc.

At Yutaka, workers are called “associates”. Shiraishi likes his “associates”. “Their productivity is good, “he says, “they are very friendly”, which he says can be a liability because decision-making is influenced by personal considerations or relations. As for the PEZA, you can deal with them “without being tagged by the corruption (stigma).”


Sunao Kimura

Manufactures car audio equipments such as car radios and cassettes at Cavite Economic Zone

“CMCP started operations in the Cavite Economic Zone in November 1990. Since that time our company had its ups & down, milestones or significant events in our corporate history. PEZA / Cavite Economic Zone have been our “partners” through those years, be it for good times or bad times. They have been very supportive & understanding of our requests & concerns. As far as we can recall, PEZA / Cavite Economic Zone attended to these with diligence & efficiency that you seldom receive. This gives us a feeling that we are indeed partners.”

 “I am the 6th President of CMCP and unfortunately it is during my current term that the global economic crisis negatively affected our company. During these difficult times too, we saw how concerned PE PEZA / Cavite Economic Zone was. They wasted no time in coming up with cost saving measures to tide us during these difficult period. We are indeed fortunate to be under the auspices of PEZA /CES who really live what they preach and most of all, they care.”


Kiyoshi Negishi
General Manager
Semitec Electronics Phils., Inc.

 Manufactures circuit protection and temperative sensing devices at Cavite Economic Zone

 “Over the years, PEZA has provided us with continuous support. A team that is willing to stand before its locators, allows us to grow and create more opportunities to serve.  Our sincerest appreciation to Dir.

 “Words really are not enough to express my deepest appreciation for all the assistance you rendered to this company.”
 “How I wish that your tribe may increase – for you are that rare person who is willing to lend a hand, do your best and I might say a good motivator. When we were about to give up and cancel our request for authorization to import the additional automotive parts, you gave us hope and motivated us to go ahead especially since the move will assure the workers in our company of continued employment. Not many in government offices would do this.”

 “Thank you so very very much and be assured that we will see to it that our workers will get the best due to them while in our employ for this is only way of showing how grateful we are for all the care and concern that your good office has given and continues to give us and our company. “

 “They have zero corruption. She zeroes in on PEZA Chief Lilia de Lima who is very cooperative. When we have issues we go direct to her and we get quick action. We should thank also President Arroyo for the creation of PEZA. It has been a very successful enterprise. PEZA organizes activities to attract more investors in the Philippines.”

Oh Eng Leong
Finance Director and Site Controller STMicroelectronics, and ST-Ericsson (Philippines), Inc.

It is with great pleasure and honor working with the people in PEZA due to their professionalsm, business acumen and high integrity. The service extended to us is unequalled and excellent.

I am very proud to say "PEZA has excelled very well, has contributed and will continue to contribute vastly to the development to the semiconductors industry in the Philippines". I have very strong confidence and trust in the leadership, all employees and officers of PEZA for their strong commitment to serve the nation and business community with true faith and dedication.


Francis Lim
President and CEO
Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE)


 “De Lima is the right person to run PEZA at present, when the flow of investments in many countries has almost halted because of the global crisis.”
 “It’s a big challenge to get investments at present, but she works very hard to get investments,” Lim notes. “She keeps a low profile and works quietly.”


Donald Dee
Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI)


 “She’s doing a very, very good job.”

 “If you talk to locators, they are very, very happy with her not only because of the way she promotes the zones but the after-service that she provides investors.


Antonio S. Lopez
Publisher, BizNews Asia 
Columnist, The Manila Times

 “PEZA is one of the best and most honest government agency.”



 “If she were to be replaced as PEZA chief, the investors would walk out and transfer their businesses elsewhere, declared Norihiko Maeno, president of his own manufacturing firm, Maeno Giken Corporation.”

 “Before he became a locator at a PEZA facility in Cavite, Norihiko worked with several Japanese firms, also in PEZA areas. Earlier, he worked in almost 20 countries, but he and his wife fell in love, he said, with the Philippines, its friendly people, weather, and above all, Lilia’s style of leadership.”


Jullie Y. Daza
Philippine StarColumnist

 “In the Republic of Lilia de Lima, aka PEZA or Philippine Economic Zone Authority, the director-general writes her own rules and stands by them, come one or two or three Presidents of the bigger Republic.”
 “A one-stop shop that’s also a non-stop shop, where everyone works 24/7 to ship out goods and services within their allotted time of five days, Monday to Friday, its ability to meet deadlines is not its singular achievement. The most remarkable is how Ms. Lilia’s zone of authority has maintained its reputation as “the cleanest, most efficient in Asia,” in the words of one of its satisfied locators.”



Gregory Reichow
Vice President
SunPower Philippines Manufacturing LTD.

SunPower's success as a world-wide company is directly related to our success in the Philippines. Our factories have outperformed our expectations year after year. This is the result of an outstanding work force and a very business friendly environment. PEZA is at the center of this success and has been a great resource. They are truly the one-stop-shop to get things done and allow businesses to focus on what they do best.. running their business!

Mitsuwa  Philippines Inc. started commercial operation at the Cavite Economic Zone in 1995, since then we have registered in our minds that PEZA  is the most Honest Government Agency in the Philippines. All PEZA staff are always willing to go an extra mile to help investors just to make everything easy and hassle free . Thanks to the able leadership of Director General Lilia de Lima,  she has managed PEZA in a way that all Government   Agenciesmust emulate.

Kazuie Hirose
Cebu Mitsumi, Inc

PEZA’s “One-Stop Shop” concept, as well as, other various electronic transaction processing initiatives greatly enhance our capability to expand our operations with greater ease and flexibility.

It saves us from doing the usual time-consuming, as well as, costly, physical activities and allows us to focus more on our core business processes.

PEZA is a professionally-managed government institution and has been our reliable partner in growing our business here in the Philippines.



Ed Fortunado
Managing Director
Analog Devices Philippines

Analog Devices (ADI) has been in the Philippines for 27 years, several years ahead of the creation of PEZA in 1995.  We could definitely attest to the contributions of PEZA to the way ADI in the Philippines has become competitive globally.

PEZA has been proactive in pushing for essential changes and driving the proper government agencies concerned towards improved services for a healthier business environment.  Director General Lilia de Lima’s passion for PEZA’s mission & vision and her personal intervention in issues that concern investors are at the forefront of PEZA’s continuing efforts to be a true partner to the investors.
PEZA’s efficiency and effectiveness is certainly true to its “No Red Tape, Only Red Carpet Treatment” promise to its investors.

       Executive Director                                                     President           



On the occasion of its Pearl (30th) anniversary, the European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (ECCP) honors:

Undersecretary and Director General
Philippine Economic Zone Authority

for her support of the ECCP and its members.  Her leadership in maintaining and creating export processing zones have been instrumental in attracting European investors to the Philippines.  Her vision to move from manufacturing zones to IT zones, then to medical and retirement zones and more recently to agro-industrial zones has created investor confidence and security.  Without that vision and without tight management of the zones, Philippine exports would not have reached the levels we see today and European export-investments would not have been possible.

As a token of appreciation, the ECCP presents this mother of pearl plaque to Ms. de Lima.

Given on 9th May 2008 at the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) offices, Pasay City.

For the Board of Directors and Management of the European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines.
